Default camera + sand + sun = ?

While a camera, sand and sun can mean a lot of fantastic photos, I realise that too much of it in the wrong way can mean disaster for my equipment if I'm not careful. So I was wondering if anyone had some particularly good tips for me. I'll be going to Oman in a month and just want to be sure I'm prepared against the sand, sun, heat etc... i.e. any particular bag recommendations, I've heard sealtight but just plastic? Will the heat affect my battery life? Anything else I should know?

Just go and shoot your pics, Cora. What's the price of great pictures? Much more (to me) than equipment! I broke an EOS 10 (not D) in Sand (shutter, no way to recover), but the pictures were great and finally of more value than the camera to me. Same game with another Canon camera which felt in a mountain lake... But the pics I took during the trip have survived on the film... And now my point of view is 'carpe diem', life is too short to worry about this kind of things: I put all my stuff together, of course I take care, but I'm not paranoid anymore. Sometimes, my cameras are together with food and clothes, as long as I can take good pictures and don't need 5 minutes to take them out of five protection boxes, I don't care!
